Reasons to Forgive the Person Who Hurt You the Most

At this time of the year, your personal relationships will get a little more attention than usual. During the holidays, we often spend more time with friends and family, take part in holiday parties, visit other people’s homes and take the time to stop.

Sometimes this whole moment can be very enjoyable. At other times, we feel obliged to spend time with people who have hurt us. For others, our broken relationships prevent us from spending time together and we feel sad, alone or angry. At a time of year when we spend time with loved ones, we are often reminded of the relationships that hurt us the most.

Therefore, I would like to encourage you, in the spirit of the holidays, to forgive someone who has hurt you. This does not mean that the other person gets a free pass, but that you can feel better and develop the trauma of the relationship that has haunted you.

Forgiveness is often easier said than done. There are so many reasons why you must forgive the person who hurt you the most. I hope these reasons will help you find the desire to heal broken relationships in your life during this vacation period.
Reasons to Forgive

1. We make all the mistakes

It’s undeniable – we all make mistakes. It is in our nature as humans to fail, whether in our work environment, our family life or in our relationships. We are all doomed to disappoint ourselves at some point, but that does not mean we have to pollute ourselves. It is difficult to live with a mistake and learning to forgive oneself is even more difficult.

2. Holding anger is painful

“Keeping anger is like catching burning coal with the intention of throwing it to another – you are the one who is burned.”

With practice, you will be able to significantly reduce the anger, bitterness, and resentment you feel. No matter where you are now, you can improve. It’s a process in progress. Continue like that.

3. You can not go to the right things

You can now decide that the negative experiences of your past can not predict your future. Find out what’s the next positive step, no matter how small or how difficult it is, and take it with you. After all, the only thing to do is to continue. Take this jump without hesitation, without looking back. Forget the past, look ahead and get ready for the future.

4. We would all be happy with the little things

To appreciate the small things in life, we must focus on what is enjoyable, nourishing and sustainable in our lives, and away from those events that are annoying, frustrating or hurtful. It means practicing gratitude for everyday things that are easily seen as acquired or completely missing. Adopting this perspective does not prevent the occurrence of negative events, but it can help us to not overestimate their importance in our lives.

5. We are all responsible for our own happiness

The next time you are looking for happiness, look in the mirror. This reflection is the one that is responsible for your happiness.

Of course, there are times when you feel different emotions, but all this should not stop you from knowing happiness again, because everyone deserves to be happy.

My integrity is my greatest strength.

My love is free but my trust is earned. Do not mistake my kindness for weakness because my integrity is my greatest strength. — Anna Grace Taylor.

Three things.

Why do we so often treat those we love the most? Contrary to popular belief, I do not think the answer is that familiarity triggers contempt. It’s not that all the wonderful things we loved about our loved ones when they came into our lives for the first time, have been disgusting to us (“I hate you being so nice to everyone!” On the contrary, our tolerance for everything we did not like before diminishes over time.

Moreover, pain requires our attention more than pleasure and we come to the explanation: we have the least tolerance for the negative qualities of those with whom we spend most of our time.

Of course, we want to treat our loved ones well – and we often feel tremendous guilt if we do not do it. Provided we do not have enough of our spouse and want to get divorced, our children are tired of having them released for adoption, or our parents are tired of wanting to break contact. what should be done?

I would suggest the following strategies:

1. Pause on a regular basis to vividly subtract your loved ones from your life.

The goal here is to generate intense gratitude. And nothing brings gratitude for anything, as if threatened with his loss. Studies show that we are all able to concretely imagine the loss of people in our lives in order to evoke the gratitude we still have for them.

We can do it best by presenting in a concrete way how we can take a person – and by actually playing scenarios in our head where a totally believable event wins. Try the following: Make a list of things you love about your loved ones and create yourself every morning – just a few minutes – to imagine how you might lose them (or lose them one day).

It is more likely that we have an emotional response to these notions when we visualize as much as possible the absence of relatives. For example, if we want to imagine a life without our spouse, we would imagine that the empty space that his absence would leave in our lives would see the bed in which we sleep now without him next to us. is the table where we dine, but without him, and so on.

And when we think of how we should change our daily lives in our absence, we imagine again taking photos – photos that go to the movies alone, going on vacation alone, attending parent-teacher conferences, and so on. By repeating this practice regularly, you may develop a habit that you can continue to fill with gratitude.

2. Spend time with your loved ones in the company of other people.

As I wrote, it turns out who we are and basically depends on who we are. For example, have you ever noticed how you feel and behave differently with your family and friends – and another with your colleagues or boss? We may all be multiple beings, but what we are at a given moment does not depend on us as much as on those around us.

I suggest that if you are in the company of people with whom you feel less intimate, you will behave more and more politely and friendly, even towards our loved ones. In addition, you have the opportunity to observe and appreciate the best of your loved ones, which is also drawn from them by the presence of others. In short, the dynamics between you and your loved ones will change, and usually for the better, when other people are present.

3. Take a break from your loved ones as needed.

Do not do it because you have to increase your tolerance for what bothers you and your loved ones. Do this to have a new perspective. Go out alone to the world so that other experiences and others will draw from you a more generous self, an ego who sees more fully your present life; It’s easier to find a way to appreciate the good of your loved ones. and it gives you a more balanced view of things that frustrate you.

Hurting people.

If you have to hurt other people in order to feel powerful, you are an extremely weak individual. – Bobby Mattingly.

5 Powerful Ways To Love Yourself

We have all heard phrases that implore us to love ourselves before all else. Many theorize this is the key to many other things like building self-confidence and finding the love of another. But why is it so difficult for people to love themselves? Why is it difficult to accept the fact you are worthy of love?

You will need time, patience, and practice to become adept at loving yourself. The battle is ongoing and you may stumble from time to time. Many of the thoughts that nag you with doubt and self-loathing come from inside. But there are times the comments and actions of others can trigger these thoughts.


The most important thing to remember is you are deserving of self-love.

Therapist, Health Coach, And Personal Change Facilitator, Drew Coster, talks about self-love in this article published in Psych Central.

What Is Self-Love – The process of loving oneself is both physical and mental. Many times it is necessary to put your own needs first in life. This is difficult to do if you do not believe you deserve it.

Why Self-Love Is Necessary – Lacking self-love can negatively affect every aspect of your life. People who do not love themselves often continue on a downward spiral until relationships with friends and family begin to suffer. The absence of self-love can even lead to depression.


It is not necessary to diagnose a mental or emotional disorder to experience these problems. Everyone has days when the thoughts in their head or the actions of others destroy their emotions. But when these days begin to happen with frequency, it can mark the beginning of a dark and dangerous road. No one but yourself can rescue you from depression. It is important that you choose to do so sooner than later.

Practice Self-Care

An article of its own could be written about self-care. This action affects so many aspects of your life, it is vital you practice it mindfully. The root cause is always present when there is a lack of self-care: You do not think you are worthy of it.

These feelings of unworthiness can cause you to ignore basic human needs such as bathing, exercise, and eating healthy foods. If you learn to take care of your basic needs, your life will be happy again. We often tell ourselves someone else has a greater need for our love and attention than we possess. This is often used as an excuse for not loving and caring for ourselves.


Here are some tips to love and care for yourself:

  • Eat healthy foods
  • Get plenty of sleep at night
  • Start or maintain an exercise routine
  • Take time to meditate
  • Practice good hygiene
  • Say no to things that compromise your love for self
  • Do something for yourself on a daily basis

Pen A Letter To Yourself

Sit down and pretend you are looking at yourself. Write a letter that highlights all the good things you see. Also, sketch all the encouragement the person you see needs to hear. Seal the letter and put it in a safe place until you return for it. Read the letter later to remind yourself why you should always have compassion and love for yourself. This self-compassion will give you greater inner strength, emotional stability, and an increased ability to remain calm.

Make Time For A Heart To Heart With Yourself

Experts believe in the proven ability of self-talks to reaffirm the value of anyone struggling with self-worth issues. These discussions can basically take place everywhere and can even be used as a preventive measure when no problem exists. Take the time regularly to verbally reaffirm your positive traits and qualities.

You should also tell your inner critic to shut up.

Record Negative Thoughts In A Journal

Negative thoughts about yourself cannot be helpful. This is true whether the thoughts originate within yourself or are prompted by someone. You can take the bite out of these words by writing or recording the negative thoughts you have for yourself. Later, read these words to yourself.

Ask yourself if these are things you would say to other people. If not, why would you talk to yourself this way?

Use Loving-Kindness Meditation

With guided meditation, you can overcome past problems that dominate your thoughts. This will also work for new thoughts and events. Meditation promotes positivity by training the person to live in the present. Breathing exercises and yoga can be added for a complete body and mind experience.

8 Lessons STRONG Mothers Teach Their Daughters.

It’s impossible to overestimate the impact a mother’s love can have on her children. In a thousand ways, she makes them who they are. Are you lucky enough to have a very strong mother, or to be one?

If so, you likely recognize these eight lessons:

1. Strength and softness can – and should – coexist.

Being strong does not mean being cold and not caring. The most influential persons out there are also the sweetest and kindest ones. Caring about others and being kind to everyone shows character and great personality. A strong mother teaches their kids the right values and ways to behave.

2. The most important person you can build a relationship with is yourself.

Along with that independence and empowering strength, your mom taught you, she snuck in an awful lot about loving yourself. She taught you that you know yourself better than anyone and that if something isn’t right, you don’t need it in your life. She taught you how to walk away from negativity and the people and situations that would only bring you down in life. She showed you perseverance, even when it seems like the whole world is against you, you know your worth because your mother showed you what you’re capable of. She taught you that your failures and heartbreaks are not what defines you in life, but instead, it is the character you put forth in this world.

3. You are enough.

An empowering mother knows that her daughter can be complete even without a man by her side. She has herself to be that way. The most wonderful thing – love- can be found in billions of places and that does not require marriage.

4. Happiness isn’t something we find. It’s something we create.

This means that every person is responsible for their happiness or unhappiness. If you do not like something about your life, then it is in your hands to change it for the better. The best example of happiness is, of course, a happy mother, who is full of life and enjoys every second of it.

5. They show them how to parent with kindness and consistency.

Children learn by example, and it’s amazing what they soak up without consciously trying. For this reason, most of us have the natural inclination to revert to our own mothers’ parenting tactics as adults. A strong mother can trust that, when this happens, it will be a helpful nudge in the right direction, rather than a bad instinct her daughter has to fight against.

6. Have faith. Things will work out in the end.

Daughters whose mothers fight through life patiently and devotedly have a great role model. An empowering mother provides her daughter with things to count on such as spiritualism, philosophy, religion, even a feeling of trust towards the universe. She teaches her how to make use of it.

7. Unconditional love is real, and it is powerful.

Your mother’s smile is probably imprinted in your mind, a vision you’ll never forget. Growing up you watched her sacrifice everything for you. Her time, energy, health, money, youth, and even alone time in the bathroom, all for you (and your siblings!) She only put her best foot forward for you, never complaining about her sacrifices and never boasting about them either. She didn’t need to belittle anyone else’s struggles or accomplishments to feel better about her own and she showed that courage to you every day. In everything she did, your mother taught you what unconditional love was and she showed you what sacrifice truly looked like, and no love will ever compare.

8. Being a woman is not easy.

A strong mother explains to her daughter that it’s not always easy being a woman. The world may seem unfair at times just because of her gender. Regardless, a strong mother teacher her daughter to navigate womanhood with dignity and integrity, always.

Clint Eastwood stayed silent for over 60 years, finally shares heart wrenching story

We all know and love movie star and director Clint Eastwood.

With countless movie awards, he has for many years been the symbol of masculinity for his iconic roles, not to mention his role in politics.

His personal life is not something he shouts about but the 86-year-old star has had his fair share of romances; as well as being married twice he has seven children.

Now, Eastwood has revealed a story that connects him to one of his iconic films; a story that he has kept quiet about for decades.

Old Hollywood & Beauty / Facebook

The longest running movie star in Hollywood was born in San Francisco in 1930 during the Great Depression. He has one younger sister.

His father was a steelworker and the family moved around a lot during his youth.

He was nicknamed Samson at birth as he weighed an astonishing 11 pounds 6 ounces. He eventually grew to be 6 feet 4 inches tall.

Clint Eastwood Quotes and Photos / Facebook

After high school, he moved to Seattle, where he worked as a lifeguard, before being drafted into the United States Army in 1950, according to Wikipedia.

But, what many don’t know is that, at 21 years old, Eastwood was a passenger on a World War II-era Naval aircraft that crashed in the Pacific.

“I was catching a free ride from Seattle down to Almeda,” Eastwood said in an interview with The Telegraph.

“It was stormy and we went down off of Point Reyes, California, in the Pacific. I found myself in the water swimming a few miles towards the shore. I remember thinking, ‘well, 21 is not as long as a person wants to live.’”

Clint Eastwood Quotes and Photos / Facebook

Radio for help

Eastwood spent several hours in the Pacific, where he swam his way through beds of kelp before reaching the shore and climbing up a cliff to radio for help.

This experience was very useful when he was directing the 2016 biographical movie Sully: Miracle on the Hudson starring Tom Hanks.

The award-winning movie shows the 2009 emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River, in which all 155 passengers and crew survived.

In the movie, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger made the split-second decision to land the plane in the freezing cold waters of the Hudson River, a decision that was later challenged by his seniors.

“I suppose having been in a similar situation as the pilot, I would have changed a water landing rather than go someplace where there’s no runway,” Eastwood said in The Telegraph interview.

“And of course, Sully was familiar with that area…he picked the right spot…He knew that somebody would see them” he continued.

Daily Clint Eastwood / Facebook

Despite the miraculous landing that Sully managed to negotiate and the lives he saved it was what came after that impressed Eastwood more.

“Anybody who keeps their wits about them when things are going wrong, who can negotiate problems without panicking, is someone of superior character, and interesting to watch on film,” Eastwood said.

“But for me, the real conflict came after, with the investigative board questioning his decisions, even though he had saved so many lives.”

Clint Eastwood has had a remarkable career. Find out more in the video below.

Even at age 88, he is still handsome, working and so talented. Thank you for making such good movies.

Kids need to spend more time with their grandparents, study says

The relationship between grandparents and grandchildren is mystical and inseparable. Really, remember how you wanted to go to your grandparents’ house when you were a kid. It was nice and cozy with them, and their fairy tales seemed to be more interesting than any other fairy tale in the world.

However, the connection of generations is not limited only to fairy tales: according to the latest study, the spectrum of grandparents’ influence on grandchildren is really very wide and children need to spend more time with their grandparents.

Researchers studied more than a thousand children and asked them various questions about their grandparents. The results were incredible: children who spent a lot of time with their grandparents spoke very well about the elderly.

They had respect, not only for their grandparents but for all the elderly people. Unfortunately, research did not show the same response in those children who rarely visited their grandparents or whose grandparents were dead.

Another interesting point is that the quality of communication gives better results than the quantity. It is really important that children spend time with their grandparents to become good and friendly people in the future.

In addition, elderly people are usually the custodians of family experience, relics, and traditions. Thus, they can show their grandchildren photos of their parents in childhood, tell about important family dates and events. Such knowledge strengthens children’s love for the family and develops an interest in its values.

Psychologists say that children perceive their grandparents as a symbol of family stability. They, according to the kids, are like the roots of a huge family tree, which will never collapse. Grandparents will always support them in difficult times and help to understand any situation.

Grandparents can listen carefully to the child and understand the child’s soul. Kids trust grandparents with their secrets, share experiences and joys, are not afraid to ask the most daring questions that concern them. They are happy to spend time together. So, it is very important for children to spend more time with their grandparents.
